Jang Myong Il was unusually interested in music from his childhood. He was learning the trombone at the Haeju College of Arts at that time. One day, he enjoyed the revolutionary opera "The Flower Girl" adapted from the immortal masterpiece of the same title at the provincial art theatre. What caught his eyes was an enthusiastic conductor leading the whole of the performance. It occasioned him to study conducting for himself on one hand. Once, the head of a department of the Faculty of Composition of the then Pyongyang University of Music and Dance is said to have come to the college on business and greatly admired Jang's enthusiasm.

After finishing the conducting course with honours at the then Pyongyang University of Music and Dance as he hoped, Jang Myong Il became a conductor of the then Cinema and Radio Musical Company. Since then, he has been creating film music.

He made strenuous efforts to create tens of musical pieces with diverse mood including theme songs, subsidiary theme songs and musical pieces for scenes and effects according to contents of different films. Thanks to his uncommon enthusiasm, a lot of films, TV dramas and cartoons could be created as famous works, including the Korean feature films "The Taehongdan CountyParty Chief Secretary", "The Country I Saw", "Trunks Grow from Roots" and "The Story of My Family".

People do not know him by sight, but by name well as his name is often mentioned at the end of every film. It is a due appreciation of his efforts as a passionate person.

Merited Artist Jang Myong Il, Head of the Korean Film Orchestra, says:

"I will create a greater number of film musical pieces wonderfully in the future, thus making an active contribution to the development of the film music of the country."

Jang Myong Il is a passionate person giving an emotional charm to the people with the film music. He will discharge his mission as a talented conductor of film music in the future, too.
